Jasmine Bunny

An unexpected amount of my time today has been spent trying to find the perfect rabbit hutch. There are numerous plans on the web for hutches to build--all with their scathing detractors--and expensive pre-built bunny mansions which are nonetheless not for the immediate-gratification-inclined--taking anywhere from a week to 10 days to arrive. I have not yet arrived at the optimal solution, but I will say I am not inclined to spend $350 to get there...

Another thing about bunnies, they are the *perfect* kudzu-eating machines. We ran out of lettuce5r8g[[[[[[[g[[[[[[[[[oooi] (Jasmine had to add a bit to my typing and paraded over my keyboard--Dave's big worry was that she would pee and ruin a $2,000 laptop...). So anyway, we ran out of lettuce earlier today (she may be a bunny, but she eats like a horse--reminds me of Keith's turtle who only wanted to eat strawberries) so when we got home tonight and had to feed her, I went down into the backyard and stripped off a bunch of kudzu vines. Then J and I stripped all the leaves off the vines and filled the cage with them (spritzed with water as she still doesn't drink out of a water bottle). See how she likes them? Then it was cuddle time with various members of the family. I think she makes a great hat for Dave.

Rabbits tend to chew on wires; i.e. power cords. Be careful.

Oh, and the pellets that they produce are really good fertilizer; save them up and use till them into your soil for some really good results in your fruits and vegetables. Seriously.
